    Hi guys, just wondering if any of you have pulled their seat stay pivot for the the rocker apart? Ive gotta heat mine up to get past the loctite on the bolt(loctite on a stainless bolt?! :nope: ) and if it shags out the bearing/bushing in it ill need to get a new one.
    Cheers n beers.

    Yes, I have, and I didn't need to heat anything.

    If you have a tough bolt there are many, much safer, alternatives to direct heat. From the back (where the bolt end is exposed) soak it in Liquid wrench, PB's blaster or a similar product and wait.
